Captain Cannuck Volume 1 from IDW publishing
by Richard Comely and George Freeman
There have been remarkable advances since the seventies when these were published in Trade but they are still remarkable. The artistry, the story line, the whole package has a much higher quality than what I believe was offered by the MEGA comic publishers at that time. Sure, it is the nice way of Canada saying…America, suck it eh! but I have a place in my heart for it. Some of the back story has changed I think in the reboot but the artists taking over the franchise for Chapterhouse Comics are treating cannon with respect. In this volume you find out how Cannuck got his powers, how he feels a debt to his brother and how the Canadian Intelligence Service rocks…in their eyes. Lot of fun so three out of five points.
